    Well...i've only just started the Physics unit 3 course and the exam is in May, i'm not too worried because science especially physics is just a list of equation to work with. however with subjects like history, you definitely need longer than two months unless they have a textbook for that exam then you can just read through that and you're done. self study at home will also mean you can be head,

    Just get started, what help is contemplating how much time you have? That's a poor mentality to have. Prepare for tomorrow today.

    well to put it out there so you can compare, i've got english lit, french, geography, 2 history, 2 RE and 3 science exam, of which, i only just started reading the 2 lit books required (An inspector calls and Heroes) and the exam is in may, the triple science course was started in february and we're nearly finished with the syllabus ready for the May exam, the 2 history has taken 5 months to learn and the exam is in june.

    Basically for a lot of these exams i'm taking, i've only just started to cover the course in school so yes it's possible to cover it within 2 months, it requires a lot of effort than usual though. But it's possible

    hello ! okay so there is so much advice i can give you but the most important and vital thing to ensure his sucsess is past papers past papers and more past papers! i can not stress this enough!! he must do past papers and mark them or get a teacher to mark them, the most important thing is not to be leanient even you can mark them just find his exam board online and get the mark schemes, with regards to the actual content e.g the syllabus make sure he is finishing it off asap so that he can start his past papers once youve marked the past papers make sure you check out the grade boundaries for that year to see progress! trust me that they are the best source of revision! they are literally a blessing you will definately get A AND A STARS if doing all of them at least once and must mark otherwise there is no point in doing them! he will learn form his mistakes and will learn what it is specifically the questions are asking him this is with regards to science mainly

    Yes and worrying if it's enough time or not isn't going to help.
